Handmade Holiday: DIY Painted Candlesticks


Christmas is in 9 days!! What in the world. Have you been overloading on ABC Family and hot chocolate? I have been enjoying wrapping/ looking at Christmas lights/ National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. If you have any more ideas of Christmasy things I should do, let me know!

If you are still shopping (as I think most people are) or you need a last minute gift idea, it’s not too late for handmade! Candlesticks are a common find at Goodwill, so I think you should be able to find some for this project, no prob. Read More >

Swagging My Mantle for Christmas

I saw Alison’s mantle, from The Alison Show, and I was like, “Oh heck, yes”. I love cheerful Christmas decor. Color, metallic, eclectic. I love it all.

I wanted some felt triangle garland, so I went to my local craft store and bought several different colors of felt, cut triangles, and sewed them together with a straight stitch. It was super inexpensive, but it was a little time consuming. But, totally worth it because I love it! Read More >

I was browsing the Christmas section of Anthropologie online (so beautiful, you guys) and I saw this stocking. I really like stockings and I like when they are fun and different. I’m still thinking about one I saw, last year, with a sequin bow. Read More >

Etched Mason Jars (a Simple DIY for Christmas!)

Christmas is around the corner and I know a lot of you have gift giving on your mind. One year, my sister and I decided to only exchange handmade gifts and it was so fun! Just knowing that someone put extra thought into your gift means a lot.

I learned how to etch glass and it’s so simple that I wanted to share it with you! I see glassware at Goodwill pretty often and this is a great way to give a personalized gift.

A few tips:

-When you put the etching cream on, make sure you have a nice, even coat.

-Apply a little thick.

-Make it unique! I used a general design for the sake of the video, but I think a name or initials would be great!


Enjoying the Good Life,
